The 2010 edition of the Hip Hop World Awards took place on Saturday the 29th of May at Eko Hotel, Lagos. African time was at its best as the event started  over 3 hours later than had been earlier scheduled. However, guests were kept entertained as various celebrities and industry folk graced the ‘yellow’ carpet wearing a mix of stunningly fab and on the other end of the spectrum, amazingly garish outfits.

Nigerian talent was on obvious display throughout the night with mind blowing performances from Goldie who delivered a sexy performance, Obiwon who channeled MJ in his dance-heavy performance, Ark-quake caused a sensation by delivering an amplified Alanta performance – you had to experience it to understand. D’Prince transformed the stage into a boudoir with  vixens writhing around the stage while the night’s big  winner Wande Coal showed us that “Orobo Toh Bad” by having a very acrobatic plus-sized dancer on stage. However the nights most welcomed performance came from the artists including General Pype who performed tributes to  dearly departed, Da Grin. It really got very emotional when Da Grin won the best rap album award and his father accepted his award on his behalf. The father received a standing ovation as he mounted the stage and gave a short speech.

Wande Coal and Mo’Hits were the biggest winners of the night, with Wande walking away with 5 awards and Don Jazzy won the Producer  of the Year award.

Duo, Skuki were the surprise winners of the keenly contested, Next Rated Category.

Though we wish the Nigerian factor of technical issues and late starts do not happen next year, overall the night was successful for Nigerian talent and the Hip Hop World organisers.

    I thought this event was sponsored by MTN but I don’t see any mention of the brand asides from “Yellow” carpet mention in the first paragraph.

    Umm…is it me,or does Modenine take the award for ‘lyricist on the roll’ every year?I mean,did he even have any song/album out in the year under review? If I didn’t know better,I’d say it some kinda deal wv the HHWA organizers to keep his name relevant.Just saying….

  13. kumzy

    June 2, 2010 at 3:35 pm

    I knw most of the songs….now that is a big achievement for me:O)
    Please can u label the pix a s some of us don’t knw all the people…thx
    And I wished they’d not put together the best pop/RnB album award. There should have been one for each as wande coal is not really pop….and people like Banky and dare and a lot more are pure RnB

  14. Nice anon

    OMG!!! lololol @ the big chick dancing with Wande, just a really funny pic.
    and whats even funnier is the guy in the army outfit being yanked.

    and as for Wande Coal sweeping about 1/3 to 2/5 of the awards? SMH. who was even the panel deciding who should win or not. he isn’t THAT great.

    @DUDU, i agree. we would like to see that too bella and team. 🙂

    @passerby, you are so ungrateful.

    I wonder why MTN wastes money sponsoring this crap?
    Ayo just cooks up silly award winners list and expects an idiotic public to just accept it.
    What the heck is the meaning of ‘voted by fans and decided by the jury’?
    If Da Vinci code was not released in the year under review, why nominate mode 9 for the award?
    How senseless is that?
    Wande Coal, R n B/Pop?
    Whoever came up with this lists must be high on 2 day old feremented urine.
    Why can’t we do things thorougly and devoid of mediocrity?Don’t get me started on that Skuki – Banger joke.
    When MTN stops sponsoring crap like these, hip hop heads would start complaining that companies are not supporting the entertainment biz.

  32. THE AMAKA

    June 4, 2010 at 5:11 am

    another question…are any of these awards televised?

  33. Me

    June 4, 2010 at 7:49 am

    WTF???that orobo is hurting my eyes..wtff????

  34. ugofrances

    June 4, 2010 at 10:13 am

    whats this crap about modenine taking lyricist of the year?…….what happened to
    MI… this awards is just crap….mode9 didnt even release an album in the year
    under review…. i tink its all a grand conspiracy and utter crap…… and MI is still
    the best!

  35. Blossom

    June 4, 2010 at 11:08 am

    Who’s the girl in the first picture o?

  36. Barbara

    June 4, 2010 at 1:00 pm

    I also feel MI deserved at least two of those awards given away. HISS… Nigerian crap. Munachi always impresses!
    There should be a best dressed/worst dressed list tho.
